Apple seems to be struggling to keep up with the production of tiny LED screens for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Additional assembly lines are expected to ensure monthly capacity of 700,000 to 800,000 MacBooks Pro with mini-LED technology. It is not certain that these lines can also be used to produce iPad mini-LED units.

Note that Apple isn’t talking about mini-LED displays, but rather Liquid Retina XDR displays. This technology is similar to that found in new locally dimmable LED TVs: parts of the screen can be turned off, improving contrast. The small LED display also provides local dimming, but on a more subtle scale.
